A new study shows a large percentage of women gain too much weight during pregnancy, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re unhealthy. More
Topic: pregnancy weight gain
Hey, pregnant ladies. I know you’ve been trying to watch how much weight you’re gaining. You’ve been trying to take in all those extra calories through salads and quinoa, you’re trying to get some exercise in, and you’re treating your pregnant body like an enormous, uncomfortable temple. That’s very noble. But you can put down the carrot sticks and pick up the carrot cake because your kid will be smarter for it. Hallelujah! More
I love it when women are happy about the way they look. There are way too many of us who are overly critical of ourselves, so hearing a woman who has pride in her appearance is nice. For a minute. Then she opens her mouth and you realize she is an awful, fat-shaming jerk. And you no longer care about her self-esteem. At least that’s the reaction I had when I read a few words from a post one woman wrote for the Daily Mail today. More
Remember Joan Rivers, ya’ll? At one point she was a beloved comedienne, former talk show host and Johnny Carson arch nemesis. But somewhere along the way Rivers devolved from comedy legend to Queen of the Mean Girls. Rivers is now best known for her bullying antics on the E! network’s Fashion Police along with serial fat-shamer Kelly Osbourne. More
Pregnancy weight gain is such a touchy subject. As with normal body weight, pregnancy weight gain is entirely individual and will depend on how much you weighed before you got pregnant. If you look it up on the trusty Internet, it recommends gaining an average of 25 to 35 pounds. My midwife recommended that I gain 40 pounds. More
I realize that I wasn’t deathfat when I was pregnant; I was at the high end of normal, but even so, gaining so much weight in nine months was scary. I worried about my baby being healthy, but I also thought about each pound having to come back off. More
Again, it took exactly six months to get back to my natural weight. But you can’t win. If you don’t lose the baby weight quickly, then something is wrong with you. If you do lose the baby weight, then something is wrong with you.
It’s getting slightly less acceptable for mainstream media to body shame non-pregnant women, so now they have moved on to pregnant women so they can do it under the guise of WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF HER UNBORN BABY?
Perhaps it was because she had recently given birth to her third child and they just expected “she had better lose that weight if she ever wants to act again” whereas the men were perceived to have a choice and they chose to face this “dramatic” weight loss challenge for a role. Expected for a woman. Dramatic for a man. Bullshit all around. More
Meanwhile, back in the world of everywhere we never see men with strong bodies posing with their babies and being told they are BAD DADS for working out.
Did you recently just give birth or have a baby within the last ten or 20 years? If so, this article is for you! Because I am here to teach you all about everything that is wrong with your POST-BABY BODY and teach you how you can remedy these things in order so you can feel good about yourself again. Here are ten of the most offensive things I find about women’s post baby bodies and how you can fix them. More
Somebody get this woman a medal of honor or name a street after her. She dared to be photographed wearing a bikini. WHILE PREGNANT. How terribly, terribly brave. Are you readers doing okay? Or are you sobbing hysterically into a Kleenex because you can’t fathom the courage and bravery it took a very attractive actress who makes her living being attractive to be photographed while pregnant wearing a bikini? Will you be okay? More
Props to Khloe Kardashian for defending her big sister Kim against the throngs of pregnancy weight baby shamers out there, which maybe constitutes like ten people, all probably the same DudeBro who is pissy because Kim has a baby growing inside of her. The reason why people don’t really care about Kim Kardashian has nothing to do with the fact she has gained weight with her pregnancy, which is what normal pregnant women do, it’s because the majority of us haven’t figured out how exactly Kim, or any of the Kardashian klan for that matter, are making any of our lives better More
I can name a gazillion reasons why celebrities like Simpson and Kardashian can be picked on, but their pregnant body weight, and their not pregnant body weights, are NOT the reasons. This level of misogynistic body shaming towards women who are pregnant has to stop. More
